A new milestone has been reached! Last weekend, Boo got her bike out for the first time this year. Both of the kids tend to spend more time on their scooters than their bikes, but with more time spent in the garden, the bikes are back out again. She asked us to take the stabilisers off it, as she’d noticed that one of her friends cycles to school without them. We happily obliged, wondering how long it would take her to master this new skill. Not long at all, it seems!
Within a few minutes, she was off, pedalling away. After she’d had a go in the garden, she wanted more, so a few days later, we took the bikes to the park to give her more space..
Here she is in action…
While we were there, the kids couldn’t resist getting the kite out, too..
Oh, how they love chasing that kite!
Boo still finds her bike a bit tricky to get going on her own, and does better with a little push off from us, but she can do it. She’s been asking to go out in the garden on most dry days to practice, and I love seeing her perseverance and pleasure in seeing her new skill developing as much as I enjoy seeing her master it.
It’s another milestone reached, another sign that my baby girl is growing up, and is not such a baby any more. She does make me proud.
